Nothing is more telling as to who calls the shots in the US economic. Consider the dearth in H1N1 flu shots. Everyday the US media keeps up a benumbing tale of the insufficiency of supply to combat the H1N1 aka Swine flu vaccine.
Yet, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and Citi Group has had no such trouble. These 3 too big too fail mega banks got the vaccine, for their employees. Now who's kidding who? The per centage of these financial institutions who are in the risk groups for the sera, is minimal, unless they are engaging in the unlawful practice of using child labout? The majority of their 'hires' fall into the less risky category of 30 toe 60, a generational span which is hardly at high risk.
So what does this tell us about the class skewered class structure in the US. The finance capitalists and their hanger ons in government and the monied interests, who brought us the great recession of 2008, count more in health, life span, and privileges than 90 per cent of the American people.
It's the survival of fittest [sic], the survival of a class of parasites who produce nothing but a steady stream of paper, mostly worthless, generating a life style which the hoi polloi can but dream of.
Crowding out the young is symptomatic of the decadence of the American ruling class.
